Dehumanisation in Literature: the Figure of the Perpetrator
Dehumanisation is the denial of humanness to humans, the representation and/or treatment of certain people as “less than human”, which has serious social, political, and psychological consequences. This issue invites papers that examine literary representations of the experience of perpetrators. We are especially interested in intersectional approaches (combining race/gender/class/religion/dis-ability, etc), analyses that focus on the problem of empathy and narrative empathy, papers addressing the difference between dehumanising representations and representations of dehumanisation. However, we are open to any approach with a focus on the figure of the perpetrator, and/or the “grey zone” between perpetration and victimhood.
